ravine- raven of the north by nebezial ravine- raven of the north by nebezial
just a shot of nebezial from the time of the battle for ravenora. the glory days before the traitory that destroyed his body and soul.
in those days the ruler of the norther kingdom of aphelion, also called farreach , was the younger of two brothers. nebezial, also named raven of the north.
he was the only ruler crowned by eani with the crown from the old world. but it is his weapon that made him the king.
Not by an act of violence but by a test of worth was he crowned, by proving his power and sealing a wanderers weapon magradan. with this he was chosen to marry an eani and through the rites of old world he was to inherit the immortality of their people

but too much of a good thing will breed jealousy

What's the significance of the notch on the upper ear? I've seen it on a lot of characters from Ravine, and I'm not sure if it's a form of body modification or if it's a quality of their race (assuming they aren't human).

they are human and thats a keen eye you got there :), its a dedication of the faith of aertes, , it is done at the age of ten, , some think the sutom a barbaric one but it has remained for over a thousand years a sign of faith in fate

Okay, so the ear notch is called a sutom? And it's a combination between a display of faith and a right of passage? Cool, so where can I order Ravine? And expect some more random questions when I think of them.

Beautiful work. I discovered your gallery through a "wow, look at this" post on tabletop RPG forum RPGnet about the He-Man and She-Ra posters, and I'm very curious about Ravine and impressed with what I see already.

One question, like Arjent, Nebezial has "split" pointed ears, is this a racial, cultural or family feature? Or would that be telling...?

You know.
I hope your series will get really popular,
So popular that it will become a real time strategy game.
Because this could easily become the cover for a rts-game

amazing, i love comparing this image to the teaser you posted earlier where he is in a similar pose but he has mutated already, i just can't wait for it to come out, sadly it takes 3 weeks to ship comics all the way from us so i'll have to wait a bit longer :lonely:

just out of curiosity, how many types of dragons have you created/designed for Ravine?

Man...Nebezial really had it made before everything fell apart :(. I honestly feel bad for him. Jealous too...Because he was going to marry Calisto...But mostly bad!

calisto is his daughter, his wife is freiya. technically calisto is a half eani but even so she still posesses the power of her mother all the was to having to mask the excess of it by forming the headwings

You know, in a movie where you know the ending.. and they show a picture of the soon to be victim? Then you think... Yeah I bet they never would have guessed the S*** storm they are gona' get into.

I am getting that sensation right now.

Well done! not that you can ever do anything that is otherwise. hummmm *raises the bar for Nebzial*

Do you use the 3D masking tools in Photoshop for this stuff? I can't find anything wrong with possibly one of the hardest things to foreshorten... the breastplate. Cursed perfection >.<
